Daily Show gives Donald Trump's extreme vetting test
The Daily Show is ready to put Donald Trump’s “extreme vetting” plan to the test. Literally.
On Monday, the GOP presidential candidate described his plan for securing U.S. borders. “We should only admit into this country those who share our values and respect our people,” he said. “I call it extreme vetting. I call it extreme, extreme vetting.” According to that plan, he hopes to keep people with “extreme views about religion such as its oppression of women, gays, and non-believers” out of the country.
In response, the Daily Show sent Jordan Klepper to a Trump rally in Wisconsin to see if Trump supporters would pass such a test themselves.
“The presidency is a man’s job,” one woman explained. “A female has more hormones. She could start a war in 10 seconds.” Klepper’s response: “Haven’t all wars been started by men?”
“It’s an American ideal that we treat women with respect,” one man insisted. He was wearing a shirt that featured Hillary Clinton and Monica Lewinsky’s faces and said, “Hillary sucks… but not like Monica.” The back read, “Trump that bitch.”
